Music is a universal language. It transcends all human boundaries – including age! It’s never too early or too late to join music programs for seniors. Learning music can be a particularly enriching and rewarding activity with many benefits above and beyond just learning how to play an instrument. Musical learning has a wide variety of emotional and physical benefits, some of which include maintaining positive emotional well-being, cognitive health and fine motor skills. We could talk about it all day, but we’d rather show you with our music programs for seniors!

Ashley Denay offers music programs for seniors living in the Washing DC, Maryland and Virginia area in both group and individual settings. Whether you choose private or group lessons, Ashley will guide you through various musical activities to help develop your musicality in a fun and engaging way.

Did you know music offers incredible benefits to your senior loved ones? Music can be used to improve your health, memory and helps enhance your mood. For seniors with age-related memory issues or dementia, music has the power to bring back memories. 

Ashley Denay’s music program for seniors is offered in both group and individual settings. When singing in a group, you are engaging your mind by learning, gaining confidence, and working with others in a group setting.

Which Program Is Right For Me?

 

The program you choose ultimately depends on your goals for your musical journey! Though all of our music programs for seniors focus on similar learning objectives, there are some differences between group and individual lessons that you will need to think about before choosing which path you would like to take. Our group programs present a unique opportunity for students to have a more social music learning experience.

 

Students in group classes will have the added advantage of learning to play ensemble pieces with their classmates, something that just isn’t possible in an individual lesson setting. Private instruction will allow students to have a more individualized learning plan, letting them move at their own pace and focus more on the technicalities of playing. The choice is up to you – but if you need help deciding, you’re always welcome to contact us.
